I’ve been working in the film animation and graphics industry in U.K., Australia and Zimbabwe for over twenty years. Feature films I have worked on are HEAVY METAL for Votetone Productions [London 1980], WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT for Walt Disney Animation U.K.[London 1987] and FREDDY AS FRO 7 for Hollywood Road Productions [London 1990]. I have also worked on many television series including SCOOBY DOO for Hanna Barbera [Sydney 1985], LITTLE ELVIS and the TRUCKSTOPPERS for Viskatoons [Sydney 1997] and CROCADOO for Unlimited Energee [Sydney 1996] as well as T.V. commercials including PRITTEX and TELEMENT ANTI-FLATULENT for Barker McCormack Advertising [Harare, Zimbabwe] and a music video WARRIORS OF THE WASTELAND by Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
I trained in graphic design at the BULAWAYO TECHNICAL COLLEGE OF ART and DESIGN in Rhodesia (1972-1974) and at WEST SURREY COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN (1978-1980) in U.K. where I made a short film NIRVANA OR BUST and achieved the Higher Surrey Diploma in Film Animation.
A “pencil test” version of my film, CANDLE IN THE WIND, about Marilyn Monroe, was shown on TVS (ANTHOLOGY OF INTEREST) and Foxtel Aurora’s DARK CARNIVAL. I have made several short independent films – IN THE BEGINNING, A SNAIL’S TALE, BIGBROTHER IS WATCHING YOU and STREETS OF LONDON.
I illustrated a historical novel by Renier Artens called A COUNTRY DIES and it is available to purchase at Amazon.
I also do illustration, graphic and web design and my influences range from Salvadore Dali to the great underground cartoonist Robert Crumb to the amazing Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher. Some of my designs are available on T-shirts at THREADLESS.
